Just Hangin' Around


I thought their navigational abilities were unparalleled?! This bat got stuck in a light pull string in one of our closets. Who knows how long he was there before I spotted him. Must have took the turn a little tight and clipped the string. What a way to go! I don't believe I'll be as confident in their ability to avoid hitting me next time one of these guys is swooping around me.

We've had quite a few bats in the house during rennovation over the years... especially when I had the upstairs ceiling ripped out. They would find their way downstairs, fly around at night, sending fecal and urine matter splattering up against freshly painted walls and newly finished trim. Never thought I'd be sanding out bat turds!

Oh my! Poor little bat, but they certainly don't belong in your house! Spooky!
